Visit La Laguna – a World Heritage Site

The city of La Laguna, just a few minutes from the port, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999 as a “unique example of a non-fortified, colonial town”. After its foundation, its urban layout was used as a point of reference for colonial American cities such as Old Havana, Lima and Cartagena and it shares aesthetic similarities with them. Nowadays, the historic quarter —with its pedestrian streets inviting you to take a stroll— houses a full and bustling range of shops and, above all, quality catering.
History and gastronomy for taking a stroll and enjoying
To get to La Laguna on your own, you can take a taxi or a modern tram that stops very near the port. There is also a frequent bus service. Once there, it is a good idea to join one of the usual guided routes that visit its most iconic buildings but it is easy to do at your own pace. Distances are short and you can comfortably wander around its streets and squares featuring an outstanding number of churches and historical buildings, many of which are open for visitors.

Sostenibilidad
- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats, which pose a serious threat to the fauna.
- Use the waste- paper baskets and, insofar as possible, separate and place your recycling waste in the appropriate containers.
- Do not throw any waste or other objects into the sea.
- Respect the animals. Do not bother them or feed them. If you see an injured specimen, you can call the emergency number: 112. Do not pick flowers or plants.
- Do not pick up or take away stones or any other item from the natural environment. And do not move them to pile them up into sadly famous 'towers'.
- In natural spaces and at viewpoints, do not leave the trail or the spaces designated for people to be in.
- Respect and look after the area's historic and cultural heritage, along with the public furniture and items for visitors, such as information panels or telescopes and binoculars.
